In another aspect, the subject invention is directed toward a method for treating microbial infections in humans or other warm-blooded animals by administering to a patient in need thereof an effective amount of a compound of Formula I or II as described above. The compound can be administered in a pharmaceutical composition either orally, parenterally or topically. Preferably the compound is administered orally or parenterally in an amount of from about 0.1 to about 100 mg/kg of body weight/day, more preferably, from about 3.0 to about 50 mg/kg of body weight/day.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention discloses novel spirocyclic and fused bicyclic diazinyl and carbazinyl oxazolidinones of structural Formula I and II as described above. The compounds are useful antimicrobial agents, effective against a number of human and veterinary pathogens, particularly aerobic gram-positive bacteria, including multiply-resistant staphylococci, streptococci and enterococci, as well as anaerobic organisms such as bacteroides and clostridia species, and acid-fast bacteria such as as Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other mycobacterial species.

The R groups are as set forth above. As used herein the term Cn-m is inclusive such that a compound of C1-8 would include compounds of one to 8 carbons and their isomeric forms. The various carbon moieties are defined as follows: Alkyl refers to an aliphatic hydrocarbon radical and includes branched or unbranched forms such as methyl, ethyl, n-propyl, i-propyl, n-butyl, i-butyl, s-butyl, t-butyl, n-pentyl, i-pentyl, neo-pentyl, n-hexyl, i-hexyl, n-heptyl, i-heptyl and n-octyl. Acyl refers to those having one to six carbon atoms such as formyl, acetyl, propionyl, etc. and their isomeric forms.

The R3 substituents are preferably both fluorine and, more preferably, fluorine and hydrogen.

The R4 substituent is preferably hydrogen, methyl, difluoromethyl, dichloromethyl, hydroxymethyl or methoxy. More preferably R4 is methoxy, difluoromethyl, dichloromethyl or methyl. It is most preferred that R4 is methyl.

The R5 substituent is preferably hydroxyacetyl.

The preferred absolute configuration at C-5 of the oxazolidinone ring of compounds claimed in this invention is as represented in the structures of Formula I and II. This absolute configuration is called (S) under the Cahn-Ingold-Prelog nomenclature system. It is this (S)-enantiomer which is pharmacologically active. The racemic mixture is useful in the same way and for the same purpose as the pure (S)-enantiomer; the difference is that twice as much racemic material must be used to produce the same antibacterial effect. It will be apparent to one skilled in the art that when a chiral center is present in the diazinyl or carbazinyl fragment of compounds of structural Formula I and II, then diastereomers are possible. These diastereomers, in racemic and enantiomerically enriched forms, are also within the scope of the compounds of Formula I and II of the invention.

Both organic and inorganic acids can be employed to form non-toxic pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salts of the compounds of this invention, where applicable. Illustrative acids are sulfuric, nitric, phosphoric, hydrochloric, citric, acetic, lactic, tartaric, pamoic, ethanedisulfonic, sulfamic, succinic, cyclohexylsulfamic, fumaric, maleic, and benzoic acid. These salts are readily prepared by methods known in the art.

Pharmaceutical compositions of this invention may be prepared by combining the compounds of Formula I or II with a solid or liquid pharmaceutically acceptable carrier and, optionally, with pharmaceutically acceptable adjuvants and excipients employing standard and conventional techniques. Such pharmaceutical compositions can then be used in treating microbial infections in humans or other warm-blooded animals (patients) by various routes of administration in an effective amount or therapeutically effective amount. Typical amounts can be from about 0.1 to about 100 mg/kg of body weight/day, more preferably, from about 3.0 to about 50 mg/kg of body weight/day.

Solid form compositions include powders, tablets, dispersible granules, capsules, cachets and suppositories. A solid carrier can be at least one substance which may also function as a diluent, flavoring agent, solubilizer, lubricant, suspending agent, binder, tablet disintegrating agent, and encapsulating agent. Inert solid carriers include magnesium carbonate, magnesium stearate, talc, sugar, lactose, pectin, dextrin, starch, gelatin, cellulosic materials, low melting wax, cocoa butter, and the like. Liquid form compositions include solutions, suspensions and emulsions. For example, there may be provided solutions of the compounds of this invention dissolved in water and water-propylene glycol and water-polyethylene glycol systems, optionally containing suitable conventional coloring agents, flavoring agents, stabilizers and thickening agents.

Preferably, the pharmaceutical composition is provided employing conventional techniques in unit dosage form containing effective or appropriate amounts of the active component, that is, the compound of Formula I according to this invention.

The quantity of active component, that is the compound of Formula I or II according to this invention, in the pharmaceutical composition and unit dosage form thereof may be varied or adjusted widely depending upon the particular application, the potency of the particular compound, the desired concentration. Generally, the quantity of active component will range between 0.5% to 90% by weight of the composition.

In therapeutic use for treating, or combatting, bacterial infections in warm-blooded animals, the compounds or pharmaceutical compositions thereof will be administered orally and/or parenterally at a dosage to obtain and maintain a concentration, that is, an amount, or blood-level of active component in the animal undergoing treatment which will be antibacterially effective. Generally, such antibacterially effective amount of dosage of active component will be in the range of about 0.1 to about 100, more preferably about 3.0 to about 50 mg/kg of body weight/day. It is to be understood that the dosages may vary depending upon the requirements of the patient, the severity of the bacterial infection being treated, and the particular compound being used. Also, it is to be understood that the initial dosage administered may be increased beyond the above upper level in order to rapidly achieve the desired blood level or the initial dosage may be smaller than the optimum and the daily dosage may be progressively increased during the course of treatment depending on the particular situation. If desired, the daily dose may also be divided into multiple doses for administration, e.g., two to four times per day.

The compounds of Formula I or II according to this invention are administered parenterally, i.e., by injection, for example, by intravenous injection or by other parenteral routes of administration. Pharmaceutical compositions for parenteral administration will generally contain a pharmaceutically acceptable amount of the compound according to Formula I or II as a soluble salt (acid addition salt or base salt) dissolved in a pharmaceutically acceptable liquid carrier such as, for example, water-for-injection and a buffer to provide a suitably buffered isotonic solution, for example, having a pH of about 3-7. Suitable buffering agents include, for example, trisodium orthophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate, N-methylglucamine, L(+)-lysine and L(+)-arginine to name but a few representative buffering agents. The compound according to Formula I or II generally will be dissolved in the carrier in an amount sufficient to provide a pharmaceutically acceptable injectable concentration in the range of about 1 mg/ml to about 400 mg/ml of solution. The resulting liquid pharmaceutical composition will be administered so as to obtain the above-mentioned antibacterially effective amount of dosage.

A method of preparation of oxazolidinones of Formula I and II in enantiomerically pure form is depicted in Charts I-VI.

As shown in Chart I, fused bicyclic diazines and carbazines of structure 1 are known in the literature. EP 0 350 733 A2. Dave, P. R.; Forohar, F.; Axenrod, T.; Qi, L.; Watnick, C.; Yazdekhasti, H.

Charts II-VI outline the synthesis of oxazolidinone antibacterial agents of structural Formula I and II from diazines or carbazines 1 and 2.

As shown in Chart II, diazine or carbazine 1 is reacted with a functionalized nitrobenzene 3 (X=halogen or trifluoromethanesulfonate) in the presence of a suitable base/solvent combination, for example dibasic potassium phosphate in dimethyl sulfoxide or N,N-diisopropylethylamine in acetonitrile or THF, and at a suitable temperature, typically ambient temperature to 70° C., to afford the adduct 4. It will be apparent to one skilled in the art that the R1 residue of compound 1 might require the presence of a suitable protecting group. For example, in the diazine case, where R1 is nitrogen, the benzyl protecting group was found to be effective at blocking this position. Alternatively, in the case of carbazine variants (R1 =functionalized carbon) sensitive groups such as a hydroxyl group can be protected as their tert-butyldimethylsilyl ethers. In the case where R1 is a carbonyl, prior conversion to a ketal protects this functional group from subsequent chemical conversions. It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that these protecting groups are merely representative and that alternative protecting groups, such as those described in Greene, T. W.; Wuts, P. G. M. "Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis", 2nd ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1991, can be employed. The nitro group of 4 is then reduced by catalytic hydrogenation in the presence of a suitable catalyst, such as 10% palladium/carbon or W-2 Raney nickel, and in an appropriate solvent, for example THF/H2 O. When this latter solvent system is utilized, the reaction mixture is first filtered to remove the catalyst and the filtrate containing the intermediate aniline is then treated with, for example, sodium bicarbonate and benzyl or methyl chloroformate to give the corresponding benzyl (R=CH2 Ph) or methyl (R=CH3) urethane derivatives 5. When R1 is a benzylamino residue, the benzyl group is lost under the hydrogenation conditions and is replaced, for example, with a Cbz group during the subsequent urethane forming reaction. The urethanes 5 are then deprotonated with a suitable base such as n-butyllithium (n-BuLi), lithium diisopropylamide (LDA) or lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide, in a suitable solvent such as tetrahydrofuran (THF) and at a suitable temperature such as -78 to -60° C. to give a lithiated intermediate which is then treated with commercially available (-)-(R)-glycidyl butyrate. Warming to ambient temperature then directly affords the 5-(hydroxymethyl)oxazolidinones 6 in enantiomerically enriched form.

As shown in Chart III, compound 6 is then converted to the corresponding mesylate 7 (R=methyl) or aryl sulfonate 7 (R=ArSO2, for example p-toluenesulfonyl) by the action of, for example, methanesulfonyl chloride/pyridine or methanesulfonyl chloride/triethylamine/dichloromethane or p-toluenesufonyl chloride/pyridine. The resultant sulfonate derivative 7 is then reacted with an azide source such as sodium or potassium azide in an aprotic solvent such as N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) or 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidinone optionally in the presence of a catalyst such as 18-crown-6 at a temperature of 50-90° C. to afford the azide 8. The azide is then reduced by hydrogenation with palladium on carbon or a platinum catalyst in an appropriate solvent such as ethyl acetate or methanol to give the corresponding amine 9. Alternatively, the azide 8 can be reduced by treatment with a trivalent phosphorus compound such as triphenylphosphine in a suitable solvent such as tetrahydrofuran followed by the addition of water. The intermediate amine 9 may also be prepared by treatment of the phthalimide derivative 10 (obtained by reacting sulfonate 7 with potassium phthalimide in a suitable solvent, for example, acetonitrile at reflux temperature) with methylamine in ethanol/H2 O at reflux temperature. Alternatively, the amine 9 may be prepared directly from the mesylate 7 by ammonolysis in a solvent system consisting of H2 O/ispropanol/THF in a sealed reaction vessel immersed in a 70-95° C. oil bath. The amine 9 is then acylated by reactions known to those skilled in the art to give oxazolidinones of structure 11. For example, the amine can be reacted with an acid chloride or anhydride in a basic solvent such as pyridine at a temperature ranging from -30 to 30° C. to provide the acylated compound 11 (R4 =optionally substituted alkyl). It will be apparent to one skilled in the art that other carbonyl groups within the scope of this invention can be readily appended to the amine 9 by standard acylation techniques, for example those highlighted in March, J. "Advanced Organic Chemistry", 3rd ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1985; p 370-375, to give additional examples of 11. The oxazolidinones 11 are examples of structural Formula I, which are the subject of this invention.

As shown in Charts IV and V, selected examples of the fused bicyclic diazine and carbazine containing oxazolidinones 11, themselves antibacterial agents of structural Formula I, can be further elaborated to additional compounds of Formula I.

Compound 12 (see Chart IV), efficiently obtained by catalytic hydrogenolysis of the corresponding Cbz protected derivative 11 (R1 =CbzN), can be N-alkylated by procedures known to one skilled in the art, including treatment of 12 with alkyl halides or tosylates in the presence of a suitable base, to furnish compounds 13. Alternatively, selected alkyl groups can be appended on the nitrogen of 12 by a reductive alkylation procedure as described in March, J. "Advanced Organic Chemistry", 4th ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1992; p 898-900. Compound 12 can also be converted to various acylated derivatives 14 by treatment of 12 with various carbonyl derivatives, such as acid chlorides, anhydrides and the like, in the presence of appropriate bases, and in suitable solvents known to one skilled in the art. Similarly, sulfonamide derivatives 15 are prepared by reacting 12 with alkyl- and arylsulfonyl chlorides in the presence of suitable amine bases and in appropriate solvents known to one skilled in the art. Urethanes 16 are prepared from compound 12 through the action of chloroformates and the like in the presence of appropriate bases and in suitable solvent systems known to one skilled in the art. The above discussion should be considered merely representative in nature, since other derivatives of 12 are possible, for example the reaction of 12 with an isocyanate to give ureas 14 (R=NHY, where Y is an optionally substituted alkyl or phenyl group). Compounds 12-16 are fused bicyclic diazine examples of structural Formula I, which are the subject of this invention.

Compound 17 (see Chart V), readily obtained from ketal 11 [R1 =C(OCH2 CH2 O)] by acidic hydrolysis, for example with p-toluenesulfonic acid in acetone/water, can be further elaborated to additional examples of structural Formula I. For example, various hydrazone derivatives 18 can be prepared by reacting 17 with hydrazines, as described in Greene, T. W.; Wuts, P. G. M. "Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis", 2nd ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1991, p 212-213 and March, J. "Advanced Organic Chemistry", 4th ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1992; p 904-905. Oximes 19 are readily prepared by reacting 17 with, for example, hydroxylamine hydrochloride or methoxylamine hydrochloride in the presence of a suitable base, such as pyridine, and in an appropriate solvent, for instance methanol, at ambient temperature. Imines 20 are synthesized by treating 17 with primary amines, as described in March, J. "Advanced Organic Chemistry", 4th ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1992; p 896-897. Olefinic derivatives 21 are prepared by reacting 17 with various olefinating reagents, such as phosphorus ylides and the like, which are known to one skilled in the art. Representative examples are described in March, J. "Advanced Organic Chemistry", 4th ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1992; p 956-963. The ketone moiety of 17 is amenable to further modification. Reaction of 17 with Lawesson's reagent or alternative reagents, as described in March, J. "Advanced Organic Chemistry", 4th ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1992; p 893-894, provides the corresponding thioketone 22. It will be apparent to one skilled in the art that further transformations of 17-22 are possible. For example, catalytic hydrogenation conditions or borane-based reduction methods selectively reduce the ketone, oxime and olefin moieties, respectively, of 17, 19 and 21 to give the corresponding hydroxy, amino and alkyl derivatives, respectively. Compound 17 can also be converted to corresponding cyclic and acyclic ketals and dithio ketals by reacting 17 with diols, dithiols, alcohols or thiols under conditions, for example, described in Greene, T. W.; Wuts, P. G. M. "Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis", 2nd ed.; John Wiley & Sons: New York, 1991, p 177-207. Compounds 17-22 and the above described derivatives represent examples of fused bicyclic carbazine oxazolidinone antibacterial agents, which are the subject of this invention.

It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the described synthetic procedures for making fused bicyclic diazinyl and carbazinyl oxazolidinone antibacterial agents are merely representative in nature and that alternative synthetic processes are known, for example some of those described in the cited references. It will also be apparent to those skilled in the art that the outlined synthetic process, with non-essential variations, is readily adaptable to the preparation of spirocyclic diazinyl and carbazinyl oxazolidinone antibacterial agents of structural Formula II, which are also the subject of this invention (see Chart VI).

Step 1:

(±)-cis-2,8-diazabicyclo[4.3.0]nonane (24.6 mmol) was dissolved into 30 mL of dry DMSO. The solution was treated with K2 HPO4 (8.6 g, 49.2 mmol) followed by 3,4-difluoronitrobenzene (3.9 g, 24.6 mmol). The mixture became a bright orange color.

After 16 hours the reaction mixture was diluted with CH2 Cl2 and filtered through celite. The filtrate was poured into a separatory funnel along with H2 O.
